又到了一年一度的爱国者日(四月的第三个星期一),也是每年波士顿马拉松的日子!


波士顿马拉松是世界上最受瞩目的马拉松赛之一,每年都有不下50万人沿路在穿越美国马萨诸塞州八个城市的跑道旁围观,约2万多人参赛。


2013年4月15日终点附近的爆炸使波士顿马拉松更加为人所知了。爆炸共造成3名观众死亡,144人受伤。死亡的观众中包括一名中国女留学生吕令子。


于1897年创立的波士顿马拉松,是全世界最古老的马拉松比赛,也是世界马拉松大满贯赛事之一(其它主要赛事包括伦敦马拉松、柏林马拉松、芝加哥马拉松、纽约马拉松和东京马拉松)。


要想参加波士顿马拉松,必须有较好的马拉松成绩,或着,以团队的形式能为一些慈善机构或社团募集到足够额度的资金。

The Boston Marathon is an annual marathon hosted by several cities in greater Boston in eastern Massachusetts, United States. It is always held on Patriots' Day, the third Monday of April. Begun in 1897, inspired by the success of the first modern-day marathon competition in the 1896 Summer Olympics, the Boston Marathon is the world's oldest annual marathon and ranks as one of the world's best-known road racing events. It is one of six World Marathon Majors, and is one of four major events held in the United States through the years of both World Wars (Kentucky DerbyRose Parade, and Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show are the others).

Since 1897, the Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.) has managed this event.Amateur and professional runners from all over the world compete in the Boston Marathon each year, braving the hilly Massachusetts terrain and varying weather to take part in the race.

The event attracts 500,000 spectators each year, making it New England's most widely viewed sporting event.Though starting with 18 participants in 1897, the event now attracts an average of about 30,000 registered participants each year, with 30,251 people entering in 2015. The Centennial Boston Marathon in 1996 established a record as the world's largest marathon with 38,708 entrants, 36,748 starters, and 35,868 finishers.
